I Hate My Itchy Scalp

Have you see that photo? These is my problem for a few years already. I've been trying different kinds of remedies and went to the doctor for a few times too and they send me off some allergy medication that makes me too drowsy to do much anything and give me loads of smelly creams and sticky ointments that only mask the problem. I'm really tired and seek of it. And I get depressed when I see my scalp is flaking.
My sister has the same problem too, and her doctor advice her to use a T/Gel  Therapeutic Original shampoo such as Netrogena. It helps control itching and flaking symptomatic of scalp psoriasis, seborrheic  dermatitis and even common dandruff. This rich T/Gel therapeutic shampoo lather gently cleanses, leaving hair lustrous and manageable even with everyday use.
She's  been telling me that this skin problems has something to do with our genes. My father has the same problem too but he got it on his lower legs. He is been using dermovate cream ointment for ages.

On What I've Been Doing Lately

Hey, guys, I'm back here. Happy Sunday to all and hope you enjoy your weekend ^-^
I missed these things, writing about myself, what I've been thinking or doing? Lately, I'm too lazy to do certain things. I enjoyed looking back those time when I was a little kid and happy to be with my siblings.  It procrastinating my time until ends up in one pack because I have to do it quickly. In short unproductive and tiring days.
Going back those memories on my mind (it's always been a part of me)for the past few days that wasted my time. Modestly speaking, I've always been a good girl. For almost 19 years away without parental guidance, I have no choice but to be strong and to stand my own. From a country girl who never knew what city life is. But never, never came up to my mind to do things that can never be proud of especially to my family and to my self. However, there are times that on my journey towards my goal, there are people tries to break it. They stole the trust of m…

A Donkey In The Well

One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer  tried to figure out what to do. Finally he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be recovered up anyway, so it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well.
At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly.  Then to everyone amazement's he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He astonished at what he saw. With each shovel dirt hit his back , the donkey was doing something. He would shake it off and take a step up.
As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all k…

GT: I Love Me Mentally

Image
Once again it's girl talk. And this week topic is love myself - Mentally. 
Our mind is the most powerful force. It gives us purpose, propels actions, gives insights and understanding, makes us reasonable, in fact makes us a living thing with unique wisdom. With our mind, any ideas conceivable can be brought to reality.   So, in my mental approach in life - what I love mentally about me is being strong. My mind can able to handle any stress in life. My mother always admire and trust my capacity to handle  difficulties. She always believe that I am very strong that sometimes the expectation is  unreachable.  I  believe too that I'm quiet smart mentally - from all the hardships and experiences I've been through in my life I can say I'm proud of myself of what I have.

Top 10 Qualities Of A Friend

Image
A real friend will always possesses these 10 qualities and even more which can be important for you. If you also give these qualities to your friend there is no chance that your friendship will ever break. These qualities are important for a lifetime friendship and that is what we all expect from a real friendship. If you have friends with these qualities you have to cherish them because these qualities of your friend are vital in your life.
Here are top 10 qualities of every friend should have which I agreed upon.

1. HONESTY - Honesty is the best policy to keep a friendship alive. A real friend will always tell the truth and never lie. Everyone wants a "true friend" and you will never maintain your friendship if you don't tell the truth, even if it hurts. If your friend discovers you know certain important facts which maybe hurts you and you hide this information you will lose trust and friendship is based upon bond.  2. A Good Listener - You will need a friend to share y…

After bragging myself -financially on girls talk theme this week. I realize that I was boasting myself a little bit LOL!

I hope, dear readers of my blog, won't get tired or feed up for another sober story, I want to share. (Sana di kayo magsawa, sumubaybay sa buhay ko )Toink, Drama Queen!

From my answer on Proust Questionnaire. What is your most treasured possession?

I was born to a parents whose financial status is always a problem. I go over what I thought after I finished elementary , that I don't want to live this life for the rest of my life.

GT- I Love Me Financially

Happy Thursday everyone. Once again it's Girls Talk. This week topic is I Love me - Financially. When I read this topic of Kaye I laugh myself and asked silently  " Did I have something to brag financially?" Weeee... Like Kaye - I am also a breadwinner of the family. For the past seven years abroad, I am always a good daughter as a favorite quote of my Mom - With my income here I can provide my parents, brothers and sisters the things they needed. Bought a lovely house in Davao city for my parents and a house in Manila with the helped or I should say "contribution" of my fiancee. (Manila house only) Char!And with my weekly income I can able to pamper myself. Eating to some posh restaurant, go some shopping , and can go some adventure. I'm very thankful that since I was 13 years old , I'm not dependent to anyone. I was earning since then and helped my family in a little way.. I'm debt-free but I help my mom out of expenses as much as I can. In few mo…

The Proust Questionaire - In my words

Have you know about The Proust Questionnaire?
I've heard about about this But I have know idea what was it, until I did research about the history of it. 
Marcel Proust was a French writer who took this survey several times with enthusiasm. He believed that people must know and understand themselves before they could know and understand others. Thus, he developed a list of subjective questions that he felt would help reveal a person's true selves and true nature.
Lets see if mine will be revealed.. Be honest!
1.  What is your greatest fear ? To get old without having someone to care for me.
2.  What is your idea for perfect happiness? There is no such thing like to love and be love in return. Lived life the best way i can and cherish memories. Feeling whole and complete that nothing in this world can go wrong.
3. What is the trait you most deplore in yourself? My stubbornness and my tendency of getting irritable easily when it comes to standing of what I believe but arguing with…

Rafael Nadal is back in Wimbledon

Image
I have watched the men single final yesterday - it was an amazing game. Rafael Nadal is absolutely a great player. It took him two hours and 13 minutes to claim his eight grand slam title. 
Despite his absence last year's Wimbledon recurring his knees injuries that has plunged his career recently, he was delighted to reclaim the Wimbledon crown that he missed to get it last year!
His triumph was a different story, it's simpler than winning the title last 2008 against Roger Federer.  It was also a surprise for Berdych who struggled to find the form that saw him knock out both Federer and Novak Dykovich on his route to the final.


Nadal goes head over heels as he celebrate his wins while Tomas Berdych contemplate his loss in the background Bites his  championship trophy after his victory
He was very happy to received the trophy on his hand. It is more than a dream for him. He even goes his head over heels as he celebrates his win. It gives him a lot of confidence and power to be stron…
